Gift Card Holders



My daughter asked me to make some gift card holders for a charity event.  I recently bought a gift holder die from My Creative Time.  I have been eyeing this die for a very long time and finally bought it.  What took me so long!

I used a pastel pink card stock and cut out the gift card holder.  Over the years, I have tried to make my own gift card holder but with varying success.  Sometimes the slots for the card don't line up and I have to start all over again.  Using my new die, the holders turn out perfectly every time.  I can then focus on decorating them.  For this card holder, I chose to just add a simple candy cane twine closure and adorn it with a small tag.  I used the Tiny Tags stamp set from My Crafting Spot that comes with the stamp for the tag and various sentiments.  I use this stamp set quite often as it is very versatile.

Everyone loved the holders and they were a big hit for the charity.

See you soon and remember to keep crafting!
